This is a relatively known problem, on SMP. My old patch for that
sort of thing fixed it, and the replacement that Johannes rolled
did not fix it completely. Linus did not like my fix, because
the kindest apprisal that he used was "idiocy".

For the moment I in Red Hat ship a patch that backs out the
Johannes' fix and reinstalls my fix, because I would rather
have things working than get Linus pleased (even if such
a thing was possible...). Johannes is generally on the right
track here and will fix it compeltely in time, one way or
another (e.g. perhaps adding one more refcounting somewhere :)

If someone needs a resolution until Johannes completes it,
use my attached patch, or use Red Hat kernels.
